Description

Eriogonum is a genus of flowering plants found in North America and is known as wild buckwheat.

Astoundingly beautiful, long flowering, drought-tolerant, durable species. The bright golden flowers are attractive to pollinators. Make excellent cut flowers. Plant in the rock garden, dry areas or mixed containers. It makes an excellent accent plant. It thrives in clay soils and survives some other soils. It can tolerate light freezes.

Eriogonum species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths). The Lycaena heteronea caterpillars only feed on this genus, sometimes just on a single taxon of Eriogonum. Wild buckwheat flowers are also an important source of food for these and other Lepidoptera. In some cases, the relationship is so close that Eriogonum and dependent Lepidoptera are in danger of coextinction.

These seeds are very rare and are in limited supply.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 5-10

Height: 40cm, 16"

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: Start these seeds indoors right away for best germination rates. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination can be 30-60 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
